Announcement for CARB Accreditation and Verifier Accreditation Training for the Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS)
The California Air Resources Board (CARB) is accepting applications for accreditation of LCFS verification bodies and individual verifiers. Application forms and more information are available on the LCFS Verification website. CARB will process applications in the order received. After CARB screens individual verifier candidate applications for accreditation, approved individuals will be notified that they may enroll in required verifier accreditation training. The three training options for 2019 are shown below for planning purposes.
Applications are due to CARB by the following dates associated with in-person training offered in 2019. Verification bodies must email an Application for Verification Body Accreditation to CARB at firstname.lastname@example.org and include employees’ Applications for Individual Verifier Accreditation in the package; including potential subcontractors in verification body packages is helpful for efficient screening by CARB. Verification bodies may choose to submit the templates required in section 95502(b)(1)(B) of the LCFS Regulation after verifier accreditation training, to finalize their accreditation package. Individuals planning to provide LCFS verification services and not affiliated with a verification body must submit individual accreditation applications to CARB at email@example.com.
Please indicate the preferred week of training for each individual verifier candidate in the email (first, second, third choice) and whether they do not intend to take the first day of training covering general verification (Monday) and the accreditation exam (Tuesday morning). Every effort will be made to accommodate enrollment in the first choice training option. Candidates for lead verifier applying under section 95502(c)(3)(A)-(E) are not required to attend Course 1 taught on Monday and are not required to take the general verification accreditation exam pursuant to section 95502(c)(3)(G), but must complete courses 2 through 6 described in the daily training schedule provided on the LCFS Verification website.
Applications are due to CARB for processing and approval before applicants can register for training during open enrollment. CARB will process applications in the order received.
